At the White House, Going the Extra Mile in Hybrid Fords
Just in time for Earth Day: Another energy-efficient car in the Obama camp. The president and his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, own Ford Escape hybrids -- although Obama won't be behind the wheel of his for years. Last weekend, former campaign manager David Plouffe traded in his Infiniti for a Ford Fusion hybrid. Really, what PR-savvy political type doesn't drive one these days?
Plouffe felt that "given all that is going [on] that I should buy American and hybrid if possible," he wrote in an e-mail. Another reason? His brother works at a Ford dealership in Delaware and said the company had finally developed a good hybrid. Bet he got a great deal, too.
